Matt Wierzel Named AT&T Crusader Of The Week

WORCESTER, Mass. - Junior Matt Wierzel (Garden City, N.Y.) has been named the AT&T Crusader of the Week, for competition from September 7-13. Wierzel won all five of his singles matches last week for the Holy Cross men's tennis team.

During Saturday's 7-2 loss at Coast Guard, Wierzel defeated Nick Martin at No. 1 singles, 6-1, 6-3.
